The series of contract renewal confirmations continues at Real Madrid. After announcing new deals for Toni Kroos, Nacho Fernandez, and Dani Ceballos last week, Los Blancos have now confirmed that Luka Modric has also penned a new contract with the club until 2024.

Modric has been at Real Madrid for eleven years now, having arrived from Tottenham Hotspur in 2012. After enduring a difficult debut season in Spain, the Croatian has etched his name in the history of the club in golden letters, winning as many as five UEFA Champions League trophies, playing an integral role in each of those triumphs.

Modric’s contract was expiring on June 30 and there were some speculations over his future, especially with Saudi Arabia sniffing around. However, the 37-year-old veteran club legend has decided to stay put at the Santiago Bernabeu for one more year.

“Real Madrid C.F. and Luka Modrić have agreed a contract extension for the player, who remains tied to the club until 30 June 2024,” the official statement from Real Madrid read.

Modric, who won the Ballon d’Or in 2018, had always maintained that he does not wish to leave Real Madrid in the summer and had turned down offers from Saudi Arabia as well as Qatar.

Despite his age and the growing competition in midfield, Modric continues to remain a key part of Carlo Ancelotti’s plans and it is expected that his importance will not reduce in the upcoming season following Jude Bellingham’s arrival.

Real Madrid enjoyed strong representation at the recently concluded European Championship and Copa America.

Dani Carvajal is the only player who returned with silverware, but it is safe to say that all the team’s stars on international duty put up displays to be proud of.

The attention now turns towards the season that lies ahead. Carlo Ancelotti and co. have already begun working ahead of the new campaign, and the internationals will begin rejoining training in the coming week, as relayed by MARCA.

The early returnees

Having suffered an early elimination in the Euro with Croatia, Luka Modric is set to return to training as early as the beginning of the coming week.

The veteran recently renewed his contract with the club and will be looking to prove that he still has it on his feet.

The team’s new signing, Endrick, will join forces with Los Blancos on Wednesday as he begins a new chapter in his short, yet illustrious career so far. All eyes will be on his official signing and presentation.

Meanwhile, Arda Güler and Antonio Rudiger are expected to return to training under Ancelotti towards the end of the week.

The late entries

Players who progressed relatively deeper into the recently concluded tournaments have understandably been granted a longer vacation, and both the French and English representatives of the club enjoy that luxury.

Needless to say, no specific date has been set for their return, considering that their campaign in the Euro ran deep into July.

The team’s Copa America stars, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, and Eder Militão, meanwhile, will report to training on July 31st. Federico Valverde, who finished third with Uruguay, will likely enjoy a longer hiatus.
